Do you believe that you can effectivly raise a child and go to school/work???
My child's father thinks that I cant raise my DD properly b/c I work and go to school. I told him to take me back to court then. I have Sole custody of my DD and he has visitation. He tried to get custody the first time and it didnt happen.

  • there are plenty of moms who work and go to school while raising their children.

    so what...he thinks it's better for him to work and try to raise her? WTF that's stupid logic to me... how can he say you can't do both but he can? or is he planning on not working and trying to support her that way?

    GRRRR men like that piss me off!!! sorry, I know I don't know you or him but would love to slap him upside his head about now!

  • I have 2 kids, and work. I think they're doing just fine. Lots of people do it. Don't let him make you doubt yourself. You can do it; it won't be easy, but you can do it.
